The use of metabolic approaches can help us to understand better the functioning of cities and, consequently, can provide us with a new tool to inform and guide sustainable urban transitions. In this lecture, we will study the evolution of the urban metabolism concept, its main methods and the challenges that are affecting its effective use in urban and regional planning. In addition, the lecture will briefly present some international references and examples.
